Hair transplantation is an important step in the life of every patient suffering from baldness, a point of contrast between the old appearance that caused problems and anxiety and the new appearance that is supposed to restore elegance and self-confidence.
Without a doubt, anyone who does hair transplant will want to have a healthy new hair that will last a lifetime. But does the hair transplant actually offer that? Does implanted hair loss always suggest that hair transplantation fails?
Yes, it is assumed that the new hair received by the patient will accompany him for a lifetime and will not fall again only in rare cases which are result of certain diseases or factors. The reason for our belief that implanted hair is permanent and non-prone to hair loss is the basic principle of hair transplantation, in hair transplantation, the doctor uses the donor area at the back and sides of the head. This area contains strong hair follicles that have been able to withstand baldness throughout this period. Since the follicles that have survived until the baldness has taken its final form most likely, it will continue to be steadfast forever and will not be affected by baldness again. So, when the doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area and implants them in the area that suffers from baldness then the patient gets new resistant hair, and it will go on for a long time and most likely for a lifetime.
In this case, we must distinguish between two types of hair loss:
Hair loss often occurs after the first weeks of transplantation, which is very normal and does not mean any negative effect on the outcome of the surgery. In fact, the hair loss that occurs in this period is a positive sign that the follicles are active and functioning properly. The hair that will then grow is the healthy hair that continues with the patient and gives him the final results of the procedure. The new hair continues to grow gradually and become more intense with the passage of time, the person must be patient in this period because the final result will become clear one year after the end of hair transplantation.
it is the result of medical errors or negligence and lack of commitment by the patient. An example of the medical errors that cause hair loss: performing the second stage of hair transplant which is the stage of opening the channels incorrectly, leads to the implantation of hair follicles in an imbalanced and inaccurate way and therefore it will not resist. It is therefore important that the patient chooses a competent and professional doctor to perform the hair transplantation procedure. The patient must follow the doctor’s instructions accurately. The procedure may fail and the follicles fall due to errors that the normal person may not consider them very dangerous, such as exposure to strong sunlight directly during the first phase of recovery period or scrape the scalp strongly. In general, the first week after hair transplant is the most serious and critical, during this time the patient should stay away from the factors that cause damage to the scalp and should not ignore the doctor’s instructions.
